Manager Nathan Jones felt his side did enough to earn a win against Middlesbrough, but they were held to a 1-1 draw at Kenilworth Road this afternoon.
The point stretched Town’s unbeaten run to five matches in the Sky Bet Championship but it could have been more after Glen Rea scored his third goal this season, before Middlesbrough swiftly equalised.
James Collins was denied from the penalty spot in the second half and Nathan said post-match: “We were the only side looking to win it, I thought. We didn’t want it to be an end of season game because we want to finish as high as we can. We felt we were a little bit lacklustre, but we stepped it up a little bit. We had opportunities first half but just not clear-cut ones. We just didn’t show enough quality really but we had the better chances in the game.
“The penalty we should score but it is the second time against Middlesbrough, they have taken four points off us but it should have been totally the other way.
“If I’m honest, that is why we’re not top eight. Structurally how we are training, how we do everything, both Swansea games we felt we should have beaten them twice, Forest here we drew, Birmingham we drew and Middlesbrough both games, we should have won at least one of them.”
